Final Sins opens with Abby Sinclair being hired by Peter Faust. Sinclair, a recurring Prescott character, does private security work, and she is being employed by Faust to stop a man who is stalking his girlfriend. Abby has qualms, however. Faust is a convicted killer who ten years earlier was caught and arrested in Germany, where lax laws and good connections kept him locked up only briefly. Faust now lives in Los Angeles and revels in his reputation as an amoral murderer. His Euro-snobbish intellectualism has given him a nice following among various fringe elements, making him a sort of high-end (and free) Charles Manson. Abby takes on the job reluctantly, only because she feels sorry for the girlfriend.
Abby is sharp enough to track down the stalker easily enough, though he doesn't fit the usual insane loner stereotype. Instead, Mark Brody, an ex-Green Beret, seems well-adjusted. Abby gets closer to him than is professionally responsible and soon enough finds out there is more to Brody than what there appears to be, and the other parts are not good. His stalking is part of a more complicated thing, and Abby's involvement will get her suspected of a murder and on the run from the FBI, including her one-time friend, Tess McCallum (another recurring Prescott character).
Prescott is once again on his game in this novel, keeping things moving at a nice clip and rarely letting up on the suspense. This is what I think of as a roller coaster book; a lot of fun while it's going on, but after a little while, almost forgotten. That's okay, however: you don't read these sorts of books looking for profound insights, but for fun. And as stated before, Prescott delivers as well as always.
An evil artist named Peter Faust, who has literally gotten away with murder while living in Germany, moves to L.A. and hires Abby to protect her from a "stalker." Abby, despite being digusted with this man, takes the assignment anyway because of the challenge that it presents. However, the job is not what it appears to be and she later learns that her friend but sometimes nemesis, Tess McCallum, has some kind of connection to Faust.
This is heart-pounding in-your-face thriller and a fast read. Prescott spins a very chilling tale and provides the reader with glimpse of evil that transcends normal boundaries. The villain in this novel is a cold-blooded condescending man possessing a level of malevolence that can only be compared to Thomas Harris' Hannibal Lector.
The epic battle between Tess & Abby was predictable and the constant ramblings of Faust's philosophy made me weary at times. The ending was expected and wrapped-up in a nice little bow. I just expected more.
I've read a number of Michael Prescott's novel and I know I will read others. My favorite from Prescott is "Stealing Faces", which I hold as a standard of thrills & suspense. Final Sins fell short of "Faces" so I was a little disappointed. It was a good read nonetheless.
